Trivia / Mr. Bug Goes to Town

  • Box Office Bomb: Only made $241,000 out of its $713,511 budget in both of its theatrical releases in 1941 and 1946.
  • Creator Backlash: According to "The Fleischer Story", Max Fleischer considered the film a failure, even compared to Gulliver, and refused to even consider the film one of his achievements when he was interviewed in the 1950's.
  • What Could Have Been: Max and Dave Fleischer had planned to release the film earlier in 1941, but pushed it to December on account of Walt Disney's Dumbo being in theaters.
